From the "strategy" section of the site:
The funds for Bitcoin Hedge Fund will be held in an actively managed account that invests in a diversified group of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), domestic and international bonds, and derivatives (mainly stock options).  This fund will primarily invest in companies that have appealing fundamental value while seeking to augment gains with various option strategies.  We are not building complex arbitrage systems or investing in privately held companies (at this time).  The purpose is simply for long-term capital appreciation that outpaces the S&P 500.

The only guarantee is the receipt that is emailed immediately after the deposit.  In order to maintain anonymity and protect users from the ubiquity of hacking to BTC-related projects, the information from each of the users is stored separately (far away from) the site.

@Bloody Bell
Please excuse the signature of the post, that is quite embarrassing. I was previously linking to one of those BTC pyramid sites and when I changed my signature, I changed the linking URL without change the anchor text.

To everyone:
If the anonymity of the site and the people behind it was removed, would that be enough to gain your trust?

Announcing the launch of the Bitcoin Hedge Fund --

Beginning June 24 the Bitcoin Hedge Fund will begin to accept deposits! All transactions in and out of the fund will be entirely in BTC and are intended for long-term capital appreciation.  Please see the site for information on how to invest.

If you're looking for a way to stabilize your income from the volatility of currency exchanges, this is a perfect opportunity.  Once your BTC is finally available from the frozen MtGox accounts, consider making an investment in the Bitcoin Hedge Fund.

Email any questions to

From the "How It Works" page:

Bitcoin Hedge Fund respects the anonymity of the Bitcoin community and investors will not be asked for any identity-sharing information, simply an alias and a withdrawal address.  As the legality of this operation remains in a grey area, we will allow the individual investors to decide for themselves how they will report their earnings, but we will supply the information and paperwork necessary to inform your decisions.

Due to the lack of clearly-defined laws regarding our hedge fund, we want to keep the total assets relatively small so we are capping the maximum investment for each investor and the number of investors.  If legislative action makes the Bitcoin Hedge Fund inoperable, all funds will be liquidated, converted to BTC, and sent to the withdrawal address that we have on file.

NOTE: We know that investors can easily get around our maximum investment by creating another email address and wallet, but we recommend that you donít do this to mitigate your own risk to the process. If you want to deposit more than $1000, please email and we can discuss other options.

Because of the volatility of BTC, we are still choosing to measure our investments and growth in $USD.  At the time of your initial deposit we will exchange BTC for $USD, you may choose to have the trade executed at the current market price or set a limit order.

Our initial offering to the Bitcoin Hedge Fund is limited to 200 investors as we test the logistics of these operations. We will plan to have a second offering to investors in the fall and a third offering in the beginning of 2012 as we scale our operations up.

Initial offering:
Minimum investment = $100
Maximum investment = $1000
Maximum # of investors = 200

Deposits made before August 1, 2011 will be held for 90 days before they are eligible to be withdrawn. Deposits made between August 1, 2011 and September 1, 2011 will be held for 45 days before they are eligible to be withdrawn. Any deposits made October 1, 2001 or later will be held for 21 days before they are eligible to be withdrawn. These rules are intact simply for the purposes of maintaining stability and liquidity.

There will be no management fees through 2011. A small management fee may be initiated in 2012 (with prior notification) of up to 1%. There is no front-load fee, but there will be a back-load fee of 2%.

Sounds like you want a lot of work done for you, but what do YOU bring to the table? Seems like you're just putting out a vague idea.  A vague idea with a lot of typos.

Get used to the swings and remember that historical data does not guarantee any future outcomes.
66  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Price will be $5 by the end of this month on: June 17, 2011, 05:35:07 PM
Based on no calculations whatsoever, I'm 98.3% positive that the value of BTC will be greater than or less than $5.  So quick... buy or sell!!!

Thanks for making that... very useful little program if you're a ticker addict like me.
68  Economy / Economics / Re: Massive Spread Currently On Mt. Gox on: June 13, 2011, 09:24:37 PM
We just need more exchanges and fewer people holding onto BTC as an investment.  They're the irrational buyer/sellers and then people freak because Mt Gox can't handle the overload of requests.

Maybe you sent them to another wallet??
70  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: BTC Transaction fee of 0.01 for a 0.02 Send? on: June 13, 2011, 09:18:55 PM
I believe the enforced fee for lower amounts is to prevent spamming the system with large amounts of tiny transactions. The next version of the client will allow the minimum fee to be 0.0005.

Glad that this is in effect, actually.
71  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: RPC Miner CPU Help on: June 11, 2011, 12:18:04 AM
I haven't entered the address in anywhere... where do I do that? My problem is simply that I don't know where to input my miner's information.  I thought it would give me a chance once I opened the miner.
72  Bitcoin / Mining / RPC Miner CPU Help on: June 11, 2011, 12:04:08 AM
I have read all the beginner threads and tried to troubleshoot how to get the RPC Miner (CPU) to work for hours, but I still don't understand where I change my parameters.  I've ordered a GPU, but wanted to CPU mine until it arrives.

The message I keep getting is the following:

Could not retrieve work from RPC server.
CURL return value = 7

I don't see where I change the parameters to join my mining pool. Had no trouble getting miners to work on my Mac, but I'm a bit rusty when it comes to a PC. Can anyone please help?
73  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Hedging on: June 10, 2011, 10:28:57 PM
I think pretty much everyone agrees that Bitcoins are very volatile... nothing new there.

Mt Gox is working on some option trading arrangements with BTC. Still "coming soon."
74  Economy / Marketplace / Re: SELLING: Put options for Sunday June 12 @ $20. on: June 10, 2011, 06:53:42 PM
Are you selling them for $20, or at a $20 strike? If so, how much? What documentation are you providing?

Is anyone considering what portion of AMD's business is their graphic cards that are used specifically for mining?
77  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Selloff! on: June 08, 2011, 07:18:41 PM
Everyone calm down and accept that you are invested in the world's most volatile currency.

I suppose you're rich now, huh?? Congrats!
79  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Mining Dilemma on: June 08, 2011, 05:54:46 PM
This is not the ideal way to go, but you could always hop on and just generate through the browser.  Pretty inefficient and you can't mine with any other pools outside of BitcoinPlus, but it's a pay per share model and you'll at least see some coins.  If you make an account, you can just open the other browsers to generate with a link and don't have to login.

Self-promoting example: generates for my account and the @cc5alive Project.  If you want to set all those machines to my referral link for a night to test it out...  Wink
